Nutella S’mores Cheesecake Cups

All the best of the s’mores you’ve loved since childhood…..with the delicious additions of cheesecake and Nutella! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

One of my only memories of camping as a child was when I was around 5 years old and my parents took our family of 6 on a camping trip around the state. Since I was so young, my memories are vague, but the 3 things I remember for sure are whistles, grapes, and Oreos. Whistles because that’s what my parents got each of us for the trip….and grapes & Oreos because that’s what got us through the night!

I’m not sure which night it was (the first? the last?) but one night of our trip was a rainy disaster. We had just gotten to the camp site when it started to rain, and the rain didn’t stop until sometime the next morning. Somewhere in the chaos of pitching the tent and unloading the sleeping bags and finding buckets to catch the drips (our tent definitely had a few leaks)….my parents had the wherewithal to find food for their 4 now ravenous kids. Granted, the only food they were able to find was grapes, Oreos, and a pitcher of lemonade, but it was enough to get us through the night!

Maybe that night explains why one camping trip is all I remember taking. (After that, my parents said forget it!!) Too bad, because camping is so fun! Not that I’ve ever taken my kids camping…(hey, I’m not crazy!) But I have been camping since childhood, and I know that there’s nothing better than sitting around a campfire late at night, talking, laughing, roasting marshmallows, and, of course, eating s’mores!

We’ve been tossing around the idea of a summer camping trip (someday)….but until we work up the nerve, I’ve decided to start making a different type of s’mores – s’mores in a jar! And not just s’mores, but Nutella cheesecake s’mores – the kind that make you forget about all the other s’mores you’ve ever had. Not that it’s hard to do when your parents have never taken you camping….(sorry kids!) But not so sorry, because this is one delicious little treat, made purely out of guilt. So I guess what I really should be saying is, “You’re welcome.” (Did I hear a “thank you?”)

    I do have a memory of at least one other camping trip we took. You were the youngest at the time. You were so young that you were crawling around the campsite. What mom wouldn’t love that! I also remember someone losing a toothbrush in the dirt that trip.
    These s’mores look very civilized and delicious. ☺

    I am not a big fan of camping. We’ve only taken the kids once and unfortunately for me, they loved it! So we’ll have to go again I suppose. Maybe I could just make this and the whole family would be completely satisfied!

    Wow this looks fantastic. S’mores are the highlight of my summer! And I’m not a big fan of camping either. My hubby wanted to when we got married and I said only in a camper with running water and electricity!!
